Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 10, 2011
Hazy tan with a thin head. Medium hop aroma is woody, a bit weedy with lots of grapefruit. Earthy character. Restrained bitterness with sweet, slightly bready/doughy malts. Not bad.

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2013
Keg at Green Room during RBWG 2013. Pours clear gold with a fine, white cream head. Juicy melon and tangerine aroma. Medium sweet flavor, balanced bitterness, more juicy citrus. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Mild resinous finish, decent sweet pale malts, tangerine, lime and grapefruit. Nice IPA.

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Draft… Hazy, deeply golden ale with a small, wispy, white head. Great retention. The bouquet provides bready, grainy malts and grapefruity, earthy hops. Medium-bodied with busy carbonation. Good balance. Flavorful, but restrained, hops. Finishes crisp with a very light, lingering bitterness.

GT2 (8161) - San Diego County, California, USA - AUG 15, 2011
Tap at the brewpub. The pour is a clear, light orange with a larger, off-white creme head. Not so much retention but very nice lacework. Muted citrus hop nose. Taste is very well balanced- rather than being a hop bomb or heavy malt behemoth, it straddles the fine line like Ballast Point Sculpin and Alesmith IPA where the malt character is quenching and weightless on the palate. Nutty bitterness is restrained with small biscuit and soapy hops come through. Very soft mouthfeel, low carbonation, and not too bitter and certainly not hop forward. Long, bitter finish. Clean palate overall. No aromatic hops like normal American IPAs. I’d say the malt character, attenuation, and bitterness here is perfect. But it really needs some aromatic hops/dry hopping. Still, I was able to put away about three pints of these no problem. Not bad for 7%.

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 11, 2011
Tried on tap at the Florida Brew Fest 2011 addition. It pours hazy copper with gold hues and off white head. The aroma carries off grapefruit, some tangelo like citrus and some pine as well as faint sugary malts sweetness in the background. As it warmed a bit I started picking up mild aromatic tropical fruit like notes. The taste has a pleasingly thick body ushering in a brief moment of citrus grapefruit to tangelo hop flavor and then quickly moving into resiny hop bitterness with a sense of pine and citrus as well. This is a nice full flavored IPA that doesn’t head into robust levels of hops but there is enough there to get your attention. Solid IPA.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Had this during the 2011 Shenandoah Throwdown, via a growler courtesy of the inscrutable GT. Pours a clear orange gold with a thin white head. Soft fruity sweetness, toast, hints of peach. Medium bodied, malt, nice light bitterness. Toast and slowly developing grapefruit bitterness, more sweetness.

drowland (5980) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - MAR 16, 2012
3/16/12. On tap at Proof in Tallahassee. Slightly hazed orange pour with a small khaki head. Nice aroma with pungent tropical fruit, a bit of dank bitterness, and touches of caramel. Nice flavors of citrus, tropical fruits, and touches of bitterness and caramel. Overall, it’s a tad thin and a bit laid back, but definitely not bad!
